On the banks of a mill-brook two children were sitting one evening playing and rejoicing in the pretty flowers and grasses blossoming along the run. When suddenly the miller's two and a half year old, little son slipped and fell into the stream. The miller's helper, having just come, jumped in after it but could not catch the child anymore, for the rapidly flowing water was bear- ing the little fellow with fearful speed toward the millwheel. There was a painfully anxious instant; the little one would in- evitably be crushed beneath the waterwheel. Then rang .forth the Angel us bell and admonished all of the "Angel of the Lord." At that very instant, the wheel stood still. The good miller, at the call of the bell had stopped the wheel, so that thereby his child was saved. And then the miller's helper was enabled to seize the child, rushing on to its death, and return it to its parents. But alas, the beautiful custom of praying, when, the Angelus bells ring out the glorious mes- sage, has unfortunately vanish- ed in many families. QUITE TOO LONG. An old lady of his flock once called upon Dr. Gill with a griev- ance. The doctor's neckbands were too long for her ideas of ministerial humility, and, after a long harangue on the sin of pride, she intimated that she had brought a pair of scissors with her, and would be pleased if her dear pastor would permit her to cut them down to her notions of propriety. The doctor not only listened patiently, but handed over the offending white bands to be oper- ated upon. When she had cut them down to her satisfaction, returned the bibs, it was the doctor's turn. "Now," said he, "you must do me a good turn also." "Yes, that I will, doctor. What can it be?" "Well, you have something about you which is a deal too long and which causes me no end of trouble,, and I should like to see it shorter." "Indeed, dear sir, I will not hesitate. What is it? Here are the scissors; use them as you please."* "Come, then," said the sturdy divine; "good sister, put out your tongue." "I never hear that. It is the "I'm takin* something fer my terrific snoring that keeps me appetite — three times a day." awake." | "Wot?" "Breakfas', dinner an' supper!*' One evening an angry com- plainant appeared in Cupples' barn. "Your bull chased me around that field this morning." "Did he? Well, I am sorry. Hurt ye much?" "See here, I've come to tell you that you ought to take that bull out of the field." "It's my field, likewise the bull.'' "I guess you don't know who I ani?" "Well, no, I dunno's I do." "I am the Mayor of Scarboro and president of the Scarboro Taitsville Railroad." "Be ye-" asked Jim respect- fully. "Well, why didn't ye tell that to the bull?" By the side of a certain por- tion of a suburban railway stands a glue factory which sometimes gives out a particularly offensive smell. ,A' lady who was obliged to travel on this line quite often always carried with her a bottle of lavander salts. One morning an old farmer took the seat be- side her. As the train neared the factory the lady opened her bottle of salts. Soon the whole car was filled with the horrible odor of the glue. The farmer put up with it as long as he could, then shouted. "Madam, would you mind puttin' the cork in that 'ere bottle. BOY'S LOGIC Walking through a street the other day, I was greatly amused at two little bo'ys who were evi- dently playing school, as they sat on the doorstep. I heard one of them say: "Now, if you take two 'from one it leaves one, and if you take one from two it leaves two." I laughingly offered the boy a shilling if he could prove that sum. The boy, nothing abashed^ eagerly accepted my offer, and led me into the house where the boy's mother sat nursing twins. The boy at once said: "Now, sir, if I take mother away from the twins, I shall take one from two and two will remain; and if I take away the twins from mother I shall take two from one and one will be left." ■ The boy got the shilling. "I wish," complained the guest, "you would tell your night watchman to keep still. He makes such an outrageous racket all night I can't sleep." - "I will tell him to walk more lightly,*' said the landlord gra- ciouly; "but you know that he must walk round at regular in- tervals." "Oh, it isn't his walking that disturbs me," replied the guest; A Lrsson Well Learned. The following story is told of Elihu Root, Secretary of State at Washington, and his office-boy. Said Mr. Root to the lad one day: "Who has taken my waste-pa- per basket?" "Mr. Riley." said the boy. "And who is Mr. Riley?" asked Mr. Root. "The caretaker, sir." "James, who opened that win- dow?" Mr, Root asked an hour later. "Mr. Lantz, sir." "And who is Mr. Lantz?". "The window-cleaner, sir." Mr. Root turned and looked at the boy. "James," he said, "we call men by their first names here. We don't mister' them in this office. Do you understand?" "Yes, sir.'" Ten minutes afterwards the door opened, and the shrill voice of James was heard:^- "There's a man as wants to see you, Elihu." A Father going into his sta- ble one day found his little son. with a slate and pencil in his hand, astride on one of the horses. "Why, Hariw," he exclaimed, "what are you doing*'" "Writing a composition," was the reply. "Well, why don't you write in the house?" "Because," answered the little fellow, "the master told me to write a composition on a horse.'' Two young girls were talking on a subway car, when one of them said: "The awfullest thing happened to me yesterday. Bess and I came down together on the elevator but it was crowded to suffication. I was afraid I'd lose Bess and so I just grabbed her hand and held on for dear life. When we were nearly to our de- stination — just fancy !— I looked down, and it wasn't Bess's hand at all, but I was holding that of a 1 young man whom I never seen. I dropped it you may imagine, in an instant saying: 'Oh, I've got the wrong hand!' when what do you suppose he answered? 'Why, Miss, you are perfectly welcome to. the other if you will accept.' " Si Sanders went to the shop one day to buy eggs. "What are eggs today?" "Eggs are eggs today, Si," re- plied the storekeeper, looking quite triumphantly at two or three lady customers who hap- pened to be in the shop. "I'm glad to hear you say so/ 1 replied Si: ''for the last ones I got here were chickens."' SIYUKAZA AKEYAMNI. Seattle, Wash. Oct. 2.
